Welcome to my fall home tour, and if you have come over from Fox Hollow Cottage, hello and welcome! I am so excited to be participating in the Autumn’s in the Air blog hop with eleven of my very favorite bloggers. Each of us is featuring some of our favorite things for Fall. Some are doing tablescapes, some are doing a room or two, and some a full fall home tour. I think you will see some very beautiful and inspiring spaces as these girls are good!
I absolutely adore white pumpkins! I’m sure this comes as no surprise, seeing as how I love white everything! But I am especially smitten with these. I don’t know about you, but they definitely weren’t around when I was growing up. There were plain old orange ones and that was it! And let’s face it, there aren’t a lot of houses where bright orange decor really works 😉
Decorating with cloches is one of my favorite ways of highlighting something special or adding interest to a vignette. So although I’ve spoken of my love for glass cloches before on the blog, I thought it might be time to revisit the subject!
I first saw and fell in love with them years ago in Paris. They are all over the beautiful bakeries in that city. But at that time, I never saw them here in the United States. I’m not sure why they took so long to appear here, but I’m so glad they did!
Since spring isn’t quite like Christmas, with access to so many decor items, I tend to keep it pretty simple. I adore white flowers, and I try to have them as a focal point. I especially love the crisp green of the leaves mixed with the bright white flowers.
There are so many things to love about Christmas – from the music, to the lights, to the tree, but I must say, one of my biggest loves, is wreaths. They are such a welcoming sight hanging on a door; there is nothing that sends quite the same message. I love that they are old-fashioned, yet modern at the same time. There are lots of wreaths to love, but the simpler the better for me. If they are adorned with a simple ribbon or a few natural elements, that is beautiful; I just don’t like too much to distract from their simple beauty.
I recently shared how I’ve been into more of a ‘neutral’ Christmas lately, even swapping out our stockings and leaving some of our brighter ornaments off of the tree this year. Now I want to take that concept a step further and do more of a natural style of wrapping gifts. There are so many beautiful ways to wrap a gift that don’t involve buying wrapping paper at Target or the local Hallmark store! More beautiful, I think. I guess I love the idea of “brown paper packages tied up with string” – both literally and figuratively.
